To my knowledge, a deconstructed recipe is one that has been broken down into it’s simplest ingredients, and then re-built into something brand new.

This recipe is my version of Deconstructed Philly Cheese Steak. What are the differences between this Deconstructed Philly Cheese Steak recipe and a Traditional Philly Cheese Steak Recipe? Well, for starters, traditional cheese steaks are served as a sandwich. In addition, they include onions, green bell pepper, and provolone cheese. My deconstructed recipe includes shallots, red pepper, and mozzarella. Enjoy!
